Peacock Vase Vase, ca. 1901

This is a Vase. It was overseen (as design director) by Louis Comfort Tiffany and produced by Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company. It is dated ca. 1901 and we acquired it in 1975. Its medium is mold-blown and iridized glass. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Louis Comfort Tiffany's patented "Favrile" glass, produced at the Tiffany Furnaces in New York, featured shimmering surfaces of iridescence, reminiscent of ancient glass treasures. The "Peacock" vases reflect Tiffany's interest in the long, sinous lines of the Art Nouveau style and his fascination with highly organic forms.

This object was featured in our Object of the Day series in a post titled The Lure of the Peacock: Iridescence and Immortality.

It is credited Gift of Stanley Siegel, from the Stanley Siegel Collection.
